So, yesterday was my birthday, and for the first time since I was a kid, we actually had kind of a party. My grandparents were still in town from my sister's wedding, and my sister and her new husband were there, and so was amiboshi
, whose presence I think was the major cause. I really appreciated it; maybe I'm not as big of a people-avoiding hermit as I thought I was.
Also there was ice cream cake.
Speaking of my sister's wedding, it was pretty zany. It was supposed to be an outdoor, sunset ceremony, but a sudden thunderstorm put an end to that. Still, it was pretty good as weddings go, though considering the last one I went to was a shotgun last-minute wedding, my impressions might be a little skewed.
Also, in a weaksauce note, it looks like Robert Jordan died this weekend. It may cost me my book nerd cred to say this, but The Wheel of Time
is pretty much my favourite fantasy series by a modern author, even though Path of Daggers
kind of sucked, and I guess it's never going to get finished (barring zombie author intervention), so in the grand tradition of anonymous internet eulogies, I'd like to thank the late Mr. Jordan for everything he did, and I hope he rests in peace and that his family is well.
Back to annoying people full time in a little over a week!
